SP dispersion curves for - and -polarizations obtained using the theoretically predicted material parameters of our designed NIM. denotes the tangential wavevector along the air/NIM interface, which is given by , where is the free space wavevector, is the medium refractive index, and is the incidence angle. The light line (, ), the prism line (, ), as well as the prism lines at and angles of incidence at the prism/air interface are shown. Excitation of a SP mode at a particular polarization is indicated by an intersection point of the corresponding dispersion curve with one of the lines.

Abstract

An isotropic three-dimensional negative refractive index metamaterial has been fabricated and characterized in the visible regime. The metamaterial is based on a structure consisting of polycrystalline magnesium diboride as the host, providing negative permittivity, and siliconcarbide(SiC)nanoparticles embedded randomly within the host, providing negative permeability. The metamaterial was fabricated using hot isostatic pressing to produce a fully dense solid with well-dispersed SiCnanoparticles. The properties of the resulting bulk metamaterial were evaluated using surface plasmon excitation, which showed coupling of both magnetic and electric plasmons, signifying both negative permeability and permittivity at .
